When Dave played disc golf, he smiled and laughed more than anybody I've ever seen. His laughter was contagious, and it was always a pleasure throwing discs with him on Saturday mornings at Bryan Park.

Everyone could feel his special energy on the course and heeded his words of encouragement. Although, if he had a bad shot, he was the first to tell you about it while still laughing and grinning ear to ear. He had the absolute best expressions. I will never forget those fun times playing with Daddy Dave, a true legend.
